Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More l3 cache 3 MB vs 2 MB 50% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
More l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 50% more l3 cache per core
Newer Jul, 2012 vs Apr, 2012 Release date 3 months later
